IN CASE YOU MISSED THIS ON AMERICAN MEDIA…
Well, if you're watching the American "media," you might have missed the following juicy little tidbits:
In case that link doesn't work, google rt.com, then just type in "Secrets of Big Dirty Money" into their search engine. Normally I don't like to does this sort of thing, but I think this story-documentary says quite a great deal, and does so on a multitude of levels, all of them quite important.
First thing to be noticed here is how carefully the themes of this documentary were established and carefully researched. The Russian English news service knew who to contact, what independent research groups to interview, and on what subjects. Notably the story goes into a depth of investigation on matters that have yet to be seen in similar depth covered in the corporatized politically compliant American news media, which as an independent investigative arm, has all but collapsed. Russian television has, in other words, read the mood of the English-speaking West, and in particular, the cynical mood of the American population, and has stepped in to fill the void(we'll see another example of this in tomorrow's blog). We'll return to this point in a moment.
However, the most important point - and message - occurs toward the very end of the documentary, when the Russiantv interviews the Swiss lady investigating American banking practices, and when she states clearly and on the record that the "Anglo-saxon" banks - with pictures of big English banks - and their American counterparts had succeeded in applying the principle of extra-territoriality to force Swiss banks to give up their old practice of banking anonymity, in order to step in and seize the tax-evaders' money, an estimated 13-14 trillion. That figure should raise eyebrows, because it is almost the same figure as the out-of-control US federal debt. Additionally, the subtle message is being sent that those very same Anglo-Saxon banksters - I would call them the City of London-Wall Street group - are planning to step into the Swiss practice of anonymous banking for themselves. In other words, the Swiss banking practices had to be modified so that the Swiss would be replaced in their traditional role by the London-New York bankers.
Which brings us back once again to the fact that this is all coming from Russian television and therefore, ultimately, from the Russian government, which has now stepped into the news media role in the West in a major way with high-production value, and genuinely informative news and documentaries. In my opinion, this depth of analysis, this targeted interview of supposedly independent research groups, means that Russian tv is being fed some very sophisticated social analysis - intelligence - and is being let loose to (1) fill the vacuum and cover the stories the American media will never do, and (2) to capture the large cynical audience in America that knows there is something drastically wrong with our own news coverage, our political and corporate leadership, and to present an alternative that plays directly to our own suspicions of those institutions.
Russia is playing hardball here, folks. They've stepped into the picture in a major way. They have analyzed the social currents in America and Canada, and for that matter, the UK, and they are aiming to drive across their own point of view directly to the populations of those countries, bypassing their corporate and government leaders completely. This is the Kremlin speaking directly to those concerns in a manner and fashion that the propagandists of the former Communist regime of that country could only dream about. This is sophisticated, savvy, intelligent, and for the most part, true. Move over, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, and look out banksters: notice has been served. More tomorrow....

More interesting fact, closely tied to the propaganda question, and to the offical Kremlin’s one, particularly: the origins of it lay in the mighty system of ideological institutions, involved in the “brainstorming”, created by the Communists just after 1917. Especially, Stalin figured prominently, building the edifice of the ideological system of manipulation with mass consciousness. It reached a peak short of the war with Germany, when he appointed Alexander Scerbakov as the chief of The Soviet Bureaux of Information. Do you feel the difference? Comrade Scerbakov had beat Goebbels with the very title of himself for the simple reason that Goebbels was occupying a position of the Minister of Propaganda – what an idiotism 😀 From the latter everyone would conclude that his main purpose was to pull over on, doggedly maintain the regime’s point of view. Just think deeply: the Bureaux of Information – we are telling you just what happened. And the whole institutions of the Soviet were organized on the same principles. Take this picture – the main communist newspaper “Pravda” (still tuned on) (“the Truth”). The truth is just the truth, the pure spring without dregs and impurity. The newspaper “Izvestija” – “The news”, just news and nothing more. And further more: the symbol of German SS – the skull with the bones, the symbols worn by NKVD soldiers were those of the ripening ears. Cool? On the 4th of May of 1941 Stalin made comrade Scerbakov the head of all the writers, artists, composers, actors, ballet masters, film-directors, journalists, editors, censors, clowns and rope-walkers, football players and swimmers, illusionists, poets, singers etc of the great Soviet Country :D. Scerbakov took full control of all of the public houses, art unions, movie studios, theaters and cinema, circuses, stadiums, journals, broadcasting and the like. He was occupying a number of positions: a secretary of the Central Commitee of the Party, the chief of the Soviet Bureaux of Information, in the progress of war he was under secretary of the Defense Minister, most important – the CHIEF OF THE MAIN POLITICAL DEPARTMENT. The Goebbels himself was in a worry: he absolutely had no chances to win the competition of bullshitters over comrade Scerbakov. From what is known Goebbels cared two hoots for BBC for he thought of its level of being too low (and do you agree, don’t you?) to compare with that of the Soviets and himself. Now, hope, you’ll see and look with different view on how artful certain things and the Kremlin’s propaganda can be – it has a reach experience behind.
Just what I said earlier about how artful Kremlin’s propaganda is: its distinguishing feature is that it masterfully combines the elements of the truth with a pure propagandistic ones. The careful analysis could disclose that easily.
I have noticed this role reversal for a while … where the established media of the west has become the mouthpiece of their respective governments, and Russia appears to have a ‘more-free press’. Whereas during the cold war, the situation was the other way round.
It always is just as important to know who speaks when something is said.
Move over, Tokyo Rose and Axis Sally, and make way for Moscow Natasha, perhaps?
This is on par with the best of BBC. Great documentary. They sure as hell got told who to talk to this stuff was way too precise. Wow. Thank God for the free internet!
That is really breathtaking…and I’ve always thought there was a natural cohesion between America and Russia that has been destroyed by the political and banking elite in the Angloshere. As far as I can tell, there is no reason why Americans and Russians should not be natural allies; so what has kept them intentionally separated all these years?
I think it is time to say good bye to the Anglosphere and lose our prejudices.
I like about half of the stories on RT (i watch on tv at work) and the other half I can’t stand because they are blatant anti US propaganda just as bad as CNN or Fox is on the other side.
I watch them all from time to time just so I can draw an informed conclusion right up the middle of the spectrum. But that said, pieces like this are why the good ‘half’ of RT is worth keeping track of.
This is also why the U.S. government is getting so serious about censoring the net – now that there is no good source of real news in the U.S., they want to shut off access to outside sources, just like China, etc., have done (and not entirely successfully, I might add).
Speaking of media, did you listen to the Iranian scientist Mehran Keshe on Red Ice talking openly about their “plasma” based energy/antigravity technology and their plans to use it to go to Mars? Interesting if true, and certainly in keeping with the work of Priore, Rife, Schauberger, and others.
More evidence of a split in the elite ranks, and adds fuel to the whole factional spacewar thing.
I wonder if they managed to get their hands on things Saddam was working on……..
Certainly does seem like things are heating up.
Can’t wait to see how this develops!
Even Hillary Clinton gave a plug for rt.com, in saying we are loosing the propaganda war.
Interesting news story on waynemadsenreport.com entitled: Space Station On Mars?

ty Dr Farrell, yet again for excellent information source
Yes Joseph. I was thinking the same thing. It kind of reminds me a little of Pravda propaganda which made it’s way West in the 80’s with the mainstreaming of such things as the purported origins of AIDS and other stories. It seems like they have been trying to get a toehold into the milieu here and that the “conspiratorial” (for lack of a better term) angle turned out to be the answer.
